Breezy Hernandez has never really had a home. Now she finds herself in Martin's Crossing where her late brother left her a house and joint custody of his twin daughters. She is to share custody with Jake Martin; a very tall, handsome, intimidating Rancher. Jake Martin has always been responsible from the time he was young. He has a hard time trusting, most especially women. He's leery of Breezy because he knows she doesn't stay in one place very long. Breezy would love to have a home and a family but knows that's just not possible for her especially with someone like Jake. As they work together caring for the twins they find themselves drawn to each other. Will Jake open his heart to Breezy and learn to trust her? Will Breezy find the home she's looking for or will she move on?

I loved this story. It's one that just warms your heart through and through but also had a touch of mystery. I have read several books in the Cooper Creek Series and was sad to see it end. But for the Cooper Creek fans out there, you'll be happy to know that Martin's Crossing is just as good. As a bonus, Breezy (Mia's sister) was the main character in this story and you'll get to catch up with a few familiar faces from Cooper Creek, which was fun. I appreciated how the author tied them together. The folks in Martin's Crossing will quickly find their way into your heart as you get to know them. The Martin brothers as well as the secondary characters were fun and endearing. I loved the chemistry between Jake and Breezy. You can just feel it radiate off the pages. As I was reading I was reminded of how the Lord watches out for us and that he makes everything beautiful in His time. He makes beauty from ashes. A Rancher for Christmas is a wonderful story that will put you in the Christmas mood. This is book 1 in the new Martin's Crossing series. And how about that cover? I loved spending Christmas in Martin's Crossing and look forward to going back again real soon!!! So, throw a log on the fire, grab a cup of cocoa, curl up and find out if Breezy gets 'A Rancher for Christmas'.
